You may not encounter the vibrant changing leaves in 30A that you would elsewhere in the country this time of year, but you can expect milder weather which makes time at Fonville Park in Alys Beach that much more thrilling! Green spaces, and the beauty of nature are on full display for those who are looking forward to connecting with the great outdoors during a fall adventure this direction. In general, Fonville Park is recognized as one of the original Alys Beach parks, giving it some historical relevance that locals and visitors alike will love. If you’re visiting 30A with the entire family in tow, this is a great place to bring the kids who might have some excess energy to burn. It’s also well-suited to the adults who are looking forward to scenic surroundings.

An activity that’s perfectly suited for fall weather!

Fall in Florida still offers up plenty of options for spending time in the great outdoors. For angling enthusiasts, this means that 30A is ideal for casting a line when you make your way here in autumn.

Pair two fun viewing options when you’re in the area by making Seaside your sunset viewing stop for a day. This charming town is designed around an architectural style known as New Urbanism.

It promises to be a colorful moment.
